    5+ star romance

    Not many stories can make my heart ache so much but Lily Everett managed to fill me with emotions with Heartbreak Cove. Misplaced blame, perceived mistakes and lack of support has Andie starting fresh in Heartbreak Cove, a place where she yearns to belong and make home. Sam has his own hauntings and a past he doesn’t talk about. He is in Heartbreak Cove for more than a visit with his cousin. He’s brought with him a horse he’s rescued, Queenie, and will spend a lot of time rehabilitating her as well as helping his cousin on her ranch. Sam doesn’t expect the attraction he feels towards Andie any more than she expects her immediate attraction to Sam. When Andie suddenly finds herself looking after a young niece she never knew she had, a niece who has walls up and heart break written all over her, Andie finds she will do whatever she can to help her niece. Even if it means spending more time around Sam, who not only is a horse whisperer, but can get through the walls her small niece has. Slowly building, the chemistry between Andie and Sam simmers as their relationship grows. At the same time Andie and Caitlin are slowly making gains, and Andie is gaining her trust. But Sam has secrets Andie doesn’t know anything about and he doesn’t want to bring trouble to her or Heartbreak Cove, even as he yearns for a place to call home. “What would it be like to have someone in his life who loved him enough to never give up on him?” That’s the question, but will Sam take the chance, stay around and find out what he and Andie can have? When I finished Heartbreak Cove my heart felt so full. Writers like Lily Everett are the reason I read romance. She pulled me right in and made me feel part of not only Heartbreak Cove, but Andie, Caitlin, and Sam’s lives. I felt so much for these people! These characters are mature, realistic, and very likable. I loved watching the relationship between them all grow and evolve through the pages. I liked the connections and interactions between them, getting to know them, and the slow build of the romance. All of the sub plots blending in to Heartbreak Cove are woven in very smoothly, adding even more of a realistic feel to the overall plot. I love the settings and Lily sets them all up well, from the rowboat scene, to the characters of a small town, to the wild horses that are what Sanctuary Island is all about. Very well paced and not a book I wanted to put down, Heartbreak Cove was the perfect romance for me. Romance, chemistry, no overly explicit sex scenes, and all kinds of different relationships that impact on the main characters present day lives are explored. Lily finishes the story expertly with enough of a glimpse of what’s to come that I am so looking forward to the next book in this series! The best romance I've read in a while, Heartbreak Cove is a very powerful book that I highly recommend to all romance readers.

    Fantastic

    Such a fantastic book!! If you love sweet small town romances, put this one on the must read list. This latest installment in the Sanctuary Island series is one of the best. Two new characters to the island and their story is perfect. Sheriff Andie Shepard lives her life according to the rules. Her job is to enforce rules and keep others safe, which she takes very seriously. Her life is truly turned upside down when two things happen. First, a call from her brother telling her he has a daughter but is being shipped out on a mission and he needs Andie to care for Caitlyn until he returns. Second, she meets the very attractive horse trainer working at the local stables. Not only is she attracted to him but he seems to be the only one who can understand and get through to Caitlyn. Sam's a good man but rules aren't really his thing. When actions from his past come to light it could mean the end of their budding relationship. This is one I definitely recommend to everyone.

    Another Magical Trip to Sanctuary Island

    HEARTBREAK COVE (Sanctuary Island, # 3) by Lily Everett March 3, 2015 Publisher: St. Martin's 316 pages, approximately Romance: Contemporary ** Provided by NetGalley in Exchange for an Honest Review. ** -- SYNOPSIS -- Welcome to a place where love is in the air, fate is in the stars, and home is just a heartbeat away… Sheriff Andie Shepard may be new to Sanctuary Island, but, like everyone else who comes here, she’s already fallen under its healing spell. Andie is determined to leave her mistakes behind her and make this scenic haven her home. But she just might have to change her plans—as well as open her heart—when an unexpected visitor shows up on her doorstep… Caitlin is the ten-year-old niece Andie never knew she had. Silent, wary, and shy as can be, Caitlin only responds to the horses that run wild across the island. Andie has no idea how to deal with Caitlin—until Sam Brennan enters the picture. A tall, handsome loner who rehabilitates abused horses, Sam is able to help Caitlin break out of her shell. But that’s not all: He finds a way to touch something deep in Andie’s heart, opening her up to the healing power of love. Together, these three lost souls must face the darkness in their past to build a brighter future. Because here, on Sanctuary Island, anything is possible… -- MY THOUGHTS -- Sam's returned to Sanctuary Island, looking to Jo Ellen to house a racehorse in desperate need of TLC; one that he may just have rescued in less-than-legal ways. Andie believes in a black and white letter of the law. She does not believe there is a grey area to it at all. Caitlin's the surprise 8-yr old niece that is delivered to Andie. She only has minutes to prepare after receiving a phone call from Owen, her military brother that she's not heard from in years. She's distrustful of adult females and seems to have taken a liking to Sam and the horses of Jo's rehab center. It's a treacherous line they'll walk to find a healthy balance. Sam's past makes him a bit more impulsive when protection is needed. It also makes him more perceptive to like souls. Andie's past has made he stronger and more independent that she's almost unreachable in some things. Although these two were less enjoyable and a little more difficult to connect with, for me, they were still well written. The introduction of a few new characters along with many of the past round out the cast to the story. As usual, the dialogue and interactions are believable and natural feeling. The plot has just enough "uh-oh" drama to keep you on the edge of your seat and enough sub-plot to keep hoping for more. Plenty depth and dynamics in a smooth-flowing, full plot. There were several conflicts layered and interwoven throughout the story, all of which are resolved in a timely manner with very little predictability. The conclusion was sold, wrapping up all of loose ends of the main story and the sub-plot while the epilogue gave the readers an exciting glimpse into what to expect from the next book. Once again, Ms. Everett has provided the readers a fantastic story about second chances, renewed hope and finding love and trust. ------------------------ Heat Level: 2.75 ------------------------ Score: 4.0 Stars: 4
